I am a horse trainer and a story teller
Love it! What good sports !! I had to look up the next video on Shankless Showmanship.... I didn't even know they were doing classes like that.
I..... I have no idea what's going on here.
I've seen obedience dogs in the off leash heel pattern do similiar things. Quite amusing to watch the handler keep going while Fido stands and watches :)
That kid and judge has a 1,000 times more class and sportsmanship.
This is hilarious! Love the lady laughing in the video. You can't help but smile!
I think he failed Parelli 101.
Becky - They had a "shankless" showmanship halter class at the APHA world show. It's a fun thing. The horse and kid are supposed to do a halter pattern without a lead rope. This horse obviously wasn't into it, so the kid ran the pattern without the horse. Then the judge checked the "invisible horse" that she presented him.
Good kid... Great judge! We need more of this.
Whether you show, trail ride, or just keep a pasture pet, horses are supposed to be FUN!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Now that I know what it is, it's even more awesome :D
I had to look up the rules to see if she DQ'd.. if the horse separates more than a horse length they are.. so she handled that very well.. LOVE that the associations are going back to the FUN a little bit! Also was amused that in the rules attire cannot have bling.. I wonder how they police that! Loved this!
Fantastic! The kid did a great job, horse or no horse! Love it that the judge went along with it too!
That was completely awesome! My APHA, with his sense of humor, would do the same to me.
Thought you might enjoy this. I love this commenter on the Cyberhorse (Australia) board - she certainly can write! Perhaps we should ask her to send you a Mouthy MOnday post?Enjoy!http://forum.cyberhorse.com.au/forums/showthread.php?107111-Destructor-vs-float-round-2
Just got to watch this finally. Showmanship at it's finest. I hope she at least won some sort of honorable mention for handling the situation with class.
